"If you kick out every Latino, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet?"
Yep, someone actually said this. Who? Kelly Osbourne. This comment was made on The View, which Osbourne was co-hosting. The comment was made following a discussion about Donald Trump's racist remarks on Latin Americans and immigration.
The other co-hosts on the show quickly called out Obsourne for her remark.

This is what Kelly Osbourne had to say regarding her racist comments on The View:

"I want to start by saying I ALWAYS take responsibility for my actions. In this particular case I will take responsibility for my poor choice of words but I will not apologize for being a racist as I am NOT. I whole-hearted fucked up today. I don’t want to bullshit anyone with lame excuses. Although, I was stopped mid-sentence by Rosie and couldn’t finish my point I will not let Rosie take responsibility for my words. I should have known better as I was on The View and it was live. I've learned a very valuable lesson. It is my hope that this situation will open up a conversation about immigration and the Latin community as a whole. By the way I clean my own fucking toilets." (via Kelly Osbourne's Facebook page)
What a shitty apology. She's not sorry for what she said, she's sorry about the ramifications her racist speech has caused. And let me add to this: you don't have to be "evil" to be racist, or to be involved in racist speech. You just have to be unaware and ignorant (sometimes willfully).

Wow, what an idiot. She deserves all the backlash she gets for such an ignorant remark.
